but a love story open to interpretation

On love: Agape

Ok, first of all, I don’t know any Latin - this translation of the lyrics was done by @littlechubbyyuuri​ that I found here

I’d been looking for the lyrics + translation for quite a while, so I was really happy when I finally found them. I thought it would give me some major insight into Yuri’s character, since lyrics in YoI never seem to be picked at random.

But after reading the translation I was a little … huh? That’s not Yuri. 

So I kept turning it back and forth in my mind until suddenly a thought snuck up on me.

Wasn’t Agape going to be Viktor’s short program? Same as Eros? 

So, what if Agape isn’t about Yuri, but about Viktor?

I’ll show you what I mean in a second - let’s go over the lyrics in hors d’oevre-sized morsels:

@Lin_Manuel:

I don’t understand how people can be so narrow-minded. The world is your oyster. Be open to different interpretations and explanations.

Just Hold On, ii

We learned through promo that Just Hold On was not written specifically in response to Jay’s illness, but was a song that had been written on 2016 after Louis direct-messaged Steve on Twitter.

Then the video came out yesterday. The story of the video is of two people who meet as strangers, spend time doing fun things together, become romantically involved, get fun-married, and speed through a space-time warp to different parts of the world.

I thought it was super cute. The actors were good together, there was international and racial inclusivity, and the message was upbeat.

In the meantime, I learned more about the structure of EDM songs, which is a little bit different than a typical pop song.

Pop:
Verse 1
(Sometimes pre-chorus)
Chorus
Verse 2
(Sometimes pre-chorus)
Chorus
Bridge
Chorus
||: Chorus :||

EDM:
Verse 1
Pre-chorus
Chorus
Verse 2
Pre-chorus
Chorus
Pop Drop

An EDM song has no bridge. Instead, there’s a pop drop moment when the electronics take over—in JHO, the kind of soaring-into-space sound. The distinction between sections also tends to be less pronounced– the bass of the first verse might become the focus of the chorus, for instance.

With the above in mind, I listened to the lyrics of “Just Hold On” again, asking myself these questions.

1. Why is this song a love story?
2. Why is there a contrast between the positivity of the video and the sadness/ need for reassurance in the lyrics? Does the time frame in which it was written matter?

The following is my personal opinion.

The lyrics clearly address someone, “Darling.” The video has offered one interpretation that this person is a love interest.

The singer seems to be poised between two times, the future, which he wishes he could see (via a time machine), and the past, the “chapter” that has “ended.”

It’s a time of flux and open possibility. “You can be who you were/ or who you’ll become.”

The present, or the near future– what he can see of it– is not so great. Something bad has, or is about to, happen. “If it all goes wrong/ darling, just hold on.”

At the time the song was performed, we thought Jay’s illness was the sad event referred to in the song. And it still may be. There isn’t only one interpretation to a song. But the video explicitly associates the song to romantic love, and we can’t just ignore that this love is linked to these lyrics.

It’s not over ‘til it’s all been said‬
‪It’s not over ‘til your dying breath‬
‪So what do you want them to say when you’re gone?‬
‪That you gave up or that you kept going on?‬

The tone of the lyrics is one of persistence through suffering– the “dying breath.” It’s not about fun or partying or dancing or gambling. It’s not about a hook-up or a casual fling.

It’s about fighting back. It’s about surviving and returning to life. The fact that there’s a marriage in the video shows that the relationship goes deeper than momentary fun. It’s about commitment, hope, mutual support.

The “pop drop” moment is the moment when the main message of the song is repeated over and over. In this case, the singer sings to the second person– the love interest, according to the video. Or it could be the love interest singing back; both make sense. “If it all goes wrong/ darling, just hold on.”

The implication is that all WILL go wrong. The lyrics anticipate disaster. And the singer says, don’t let disaster break your relationship. Be strong. Hold on.

It’s a brave, kind, reassuring message. Given the events in Louis’s personal life in the last two years, culminating in the ridiculous, terrible charade at LAX airport that resulted in his being dragged through the criminal and civil justice systems– of all the participants, he was the most innocent one who was there that day, and unbelievably, the only person arrested– I marvel at his inner strength, his moral courage, his tenacity, kindness, intelligence, and sangfroid.

I want to thank Louis and Steve for making this amazing song.

Jay, you raised such a great person. You’d be so proud.

anonymous asked:

Jaladdin were paralleled SQ and now Jaladdin are confirmed TL's. Do u think it's a good sign that SQ cud b confirmed TL in the future?

Let’s see, we had… 

…more references to Emma & Regina’s past.

We had a marriage out of duty because both her father and the man she was supposed to marry said so - remember Charming giving his blessing was more beautiful than the proposal? During an arc where Emma is struggling with her duty as the Savior and how it means she can’t have a happy ending. We had Ariel coming out as a mermaid and her man rejecting her - he wasn’t the man she thought he was. In this case literally. 

There was the most romantic scene from Aladdin and it was given to two women - one of which concealed her true identity which was linked to her having a voice. Ariel even said they knew each other in various ways in case the carpet ride didn’t do it for people. The True Love Hook ended up enabling was that between Aladdin and Jasmine. Was that foreshadowing as well?

The solution was for Jasmine to stand up to her oppressor - also don’t tell me Jafar didn’t act like a sexual predator or that Jasmine’s fear didn’t seem to be about exactly that - and to give in to the love she didn’t think she deserved. 

After an episode where what Regina hates most is linked to a closet, while love was associated with pink flowers, a rainbow/bisexual colored entrance and the person who told her father how to get there was… a fairy? Really?

Not to mention we also had Regina asking Emma out on a date, all dressed up. Like Aladdin with Jasmine, she was trying to get Emma to open up. Emma’s behavior and lines meanwhile were once again up for interpretation.

She almost gestures at Regina when saying the thing she would like to be distracted from. They could have easily made her refer to Hook. Later the same happened when they let Aesop tell a story in which Emma could have identified with either Aesop himself or the wife who decided she didn’t love him. All of this kept open for interpretation combined with the Aladdin and Jasmine story.

They have both metaphorically come out of the closet, which would explain the current evolution between them. We have an upcoming episode titled “Where Bluebirds Fly”, which is a line from ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ from the Wizard of OZ, which is queer in itself, but this show has a lesbian Dorothy and True Love’s Kiss took place in Oz. We have a musical episode - where generally feelings are addressed - and we are also headed toward the final battle. Which - considering the psychology of this show - will represent a battle with the self on the metaphorical level no matter who the players are. 

So all in all, I thought all those things could be considered pretty good signs, yes.

Korean Drama Recommendations/Fangirling:

So! A friend of mine on FB asked me late last night for Korean drama recommendations. She’s never watched kdramas before, so without intending to I just vomited up brief feels, synopses, and titles for her from which to choose. These titles were only the ones that immediately came to mind off the top of my head. Seeing as how I assume some of you adorable follower-humans might enjoy kdramas too, I thought I’d share. Most likely you diehards (pun not intended) out there have already seen these, but here’s some dramas to throw in your face anyway! Since it’s my thing, I’m going to go by genre; so all will have romance as either a main plot line or as a subplot. Brace yourself for the d'awws!

1. 

If you’re in the mood for a serious, beautiful, powerhouse of a drama with adult themes (ie adultery but not really…long story), dreams and money, sacrificing your true self for security to forsake happiness, and of COURSE sex and pianos, then you need to watch Secret Love Affair. It is hot and intense and has an open ended interpretation for a finale that will leave you stunned and happy.

I mean, damn, guys…come on just LOOK at this sexiness!

Plus it’s just a damn good drama all around. So watch it.

2.

If you’re looking for something that walks the line between comedy and paranormal, you NEED to see The Master’s Sun. Its heroine is an hilariously adorable girl who can see ghosts, and the hero is a skeptic who, when the female lead touches, makes poltergeists disappear. It’s probably one of the best dramas that incorporates creepy horror with perfect comedy!

3.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, you HAVE to watch Arang and the Magistrate. Same concept as The Master’s Sun, except the female lead is dead and a ghost, the setting is ancient Korea, and there’s gods, goddesses, action, magic, and evil political dudes. Plus the male lead is hilariously apathetic, and the female lead is a badass who kicks ass as a dead girl! It’s funny and dark and heartfelt and will leave you with all of the heart eyes! Plus it has the cutest ending that ever cuted itself.

4.

If you’re looking for something strictly comedy and a bit silly, with moments of seriousness and more cute than you could shake a stick at, you need King of High School. Take an 18 year old high school guy and make him pose as his older brother as a prestigious CEO in a company that a dowdy, 30 year old over-looked heroine works at and you talk about some of the CUTEST comedy you’ve ever witnessed in your freakin’ life!

5. 

If you’re looking for something hella melodramatic and intense, go with Secret Love. Heroine is engaged to a guy who gets involved in a hit-and-run that kills a girl, and the heroine takes the fall for her fiance. Turns out the victim was the pregnant girlfriend of the male lead. The drama explores the idea of falling in love with someone, even as you hate them. Suffice to say, IT IS INTENSE, and a bit nuts of a drama, but it will leaving you feeling all of your emotions and then some.

6.

If you want some time travel in your drama diet, go with Queen In Hyun’s Man. Hero is an ancient Korean scholar who finds himself traveling to the future, where he meets the female lead, an aspiring actress who lands the role of the Queen from our hero’s time period. Comedy, cuteness, angst, and adorableness ensues. And smexy kisses. OH MY GOD THE SMEXY KISSES!

7. 

Keeping in the same vain as the historical theme, Sungkyunkwan Scandal is adorable and perfect! Set in ancient Korea, in order to protect her family our female lead disguises herself as a boy to get into a university of sorts that only permits men. Cue “male lead finds himself attracted to a boy despite him not being gay” theme and much hilarious ensues. Ignoring the gay panic is a must, but if you can it’s so entertaining and will leave you so damn amused!

8.

And, last but not least, keeping with the gay-panic theme, Coffee Prince. Coffee Prince is probably one of the best kdramas ever, and it’s basically the same premise as Sungkyunkwan Scandal; female lead lands a job in an all-male working environment to support her family. The only real difference is that in Coffee Prince, our heroine opens and closes the drama as a very tom boyish, masculine girl. She’s never subscribed to gender roles, so it makes her character far more interesting. There’s angst and cute and smexy kisses and great characters and everything you could ever want in a drama!

shadowtiel  asked:

I saw your tag and became curious. Being fairly new to the fandom, if not the game itself, I'm rather interested in this of Elliott being a merman? So what are your headcanons for this? (And maybe some background info on how it came about if you know?) I love hearing others interpretations and back stories of characters I love!

Tbh I have no clue how it came up. For me, it seems plausible with things in the game
For example: every other house says they’ll open at a certain time (I believe), while his just says “It’s locked.”

And we know that there are mermaids, the wizard (I think), says that they’re curious about the festivities at one of the festivals on the beach, the  potluck one I believe

Also his hair. He has merman hair.

And he is very gentle with sea creatures


As for my headcanons, here they are:

Is a very beautiful sea prince

Has an arranged marriage with a wealthy sea princess, did not want to marry her, and left her and the ocean behind to write books and study the human world

Because of his fascination with the human world, he got disowned, for bringing unnecessary risk into the family and castle

(has someone done a little mermaid au of him yet?)

He’s so nervous and shy  around people because he has no idea how to behave

The wizard knows, he’s the one who gave him the spell to be able to walk on land

Sometimes meets up with the mermaid he was supposed to marry and just gushes about the human world

She supports him, she wants him to be happy

MERMAID LANGUAGE

HE’D SOUND SO PRETTY

Thinks land animals are ridiculous, why would chickens have wings and feathers if they live inside most of the time

And why do you have cows just to take the milk to feed their young?

He stops trying to understand it

God he gives the cutest gifts

Little seashells and coral and it’s the cutest thing when he gives someone something

Can’t have people proofread his work at first, it’s all written in merpeople language

Has to teach himself English

Afraid of storms because they’re so much louder in his tiny cabin, oh my gosh

Understanding the End of Hedwig

I have read, in a lot of places on the internet, people saying they don’t get the ending of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Which is fair, it’s quite odd and confusing but I also think it’s worth understanding, because I think the message is truly beautiful. As with all art, it’s open for interpretation, and Hedwig is very layered so you can either skim the surface or dive in deep.

So the ending. You have a choice – the short version (brief, vague) or the long version (where I delve into the storyline, the songs and the parallel that is Yitzhak).

The short version of it is:

The play is about identity and self-acceptance. Hedwig spends the musical searching for his literal other half, the person who will complete him, make him whole. What he is actually searching for is acceptance, love and identity. (He says early on that “it’s the geography of human contact. The triangulation of a pair of eyes on my face, the latitude and longitude of a hand on my body, these are the only clue I have to my place in the world.”) Hedwig’s struggle with his identity comes of a climax (bud-dum-shh!) when he accepts himself, without the wig, or the heels, just him. The metaphor of him morphing into Tommy is that Tommy is a representation to us the audience as the other half of himself that he was trying to find and in accepting himself he becomes whole. In the musical, Tommy & Hedwig are played by the same actor forming a visual representation to the audience that he was whole the entire time. Taking this further, you could argue the part of himself he wasn’t accepting was the male part of himself.

So, Tommy represents the other half of himself that he wasn’t accepting, so in taking on Tommy’s appearance but still being Hedwig we see him accept himself as a whole.

The long version:

I repeat. As with all art, it’s open for interpretation. And for clarity, I have seen the original off-Broadway bootleg, the feature film, the new Broadway production with Neil Patrick Harris, JCM & Darren Criss. I have not however read the book.

For me, the musical is about identity and self-acceptance. One of the most important songs to the plot is “Origin of Love” it lays out Hedwig’s whole underlying belief system through out the narrative of his life. Throughout his story he is searching for his “other half” the one that was taken from him ‘when the earth was still flat and the clouds made of fire’ and Zeus “split them right down the middle… cut them right up in half”. He sees his other half as someone who would understand him completely expressed in the lyric “the pain down in your soul/Was the same as the one down in mine”, so his search for his other half is his search for acceptance.

You may have noticed I use the pronouns “him/his” as opposed to “she/her”. Obviously, this is a tricky issue and could I have a chat, I’d ask, however my reasoning is as follows: From the play we know Hedwig was born Hansel Schmitt, a biological male and forced to have a sex change in order to escape East Berlin. John Cameron Mitchell has said in an interview that Hedwig never identified as female, he is not in fact a transgender female – though biologically he is. So, in desperation to find his other half he sacrifices a large part of his own identity and embraces a female identity, however his still identifies as male hence I use “he/his”.

One of my favourite songs of the musical is “Wig in a Box” and I really love the performance aspect the Broadway Production added, particularly Darren Criss’ interpretation. The key line in the song is:

“And pull the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I’m Miss Beehive 1963
Until I wake up
And turn back to myself”
(Wig in a Box)

The important thing to get from this song, is he puts on a lot of wigs in his life but it’s only when he removes the wigs, when he’s putting himself to bed, is he truly himself. Hedwig – a stunningly well picked name – is a character, a persona he hides behind because he struggles to accept who he is. All that in your face attitude, it’s an aggressive way of hiding.

Now, this post is about explaining the end of the play, I’m getting there. But there is another significant character in the musical – Yitzhak. Yitzhak’s story runs both as a parallel and a contrast to Hedwig’s.

The parallel comes as both Hedwig and Yitzhak, in order to escape oppression, they had to give up a part of themselves – a part of their identity. For Yitzhak, it was the female part, the drag queen persona. In the musical, Hedwig is played by a biologically male actor, whilst Yitzhak is played by a biologically female actress. This is very, very important as even though both characters are born biologically male – deep down what they identify as is reflected by their actor. Hedwig looses his penis – the physical representation of his male identity, whilst Yitzhak looses the wigs, the female part of his identity. The Contrast.

Now, the parallel of Yitzhak’s story obviously means the end of his story is a reflection of the end of Hedwig’s. Which is why I think it’s important.
(On a side note: Yitzhak’s whole story is shown much better in the onstage musical, particularly the revival. When I saw the feature film, which is the first version of Hedwig I saw, Yitzhak’s whole story was lost on me. I was completely bemused and confused when he was auditioning for Rent or something? It’s just one of the layers that I think it was difficult to replicate in the film.)

So in “Exquisite Corpse”, Hedwig goes nuts, everything goes a bit ballistic, he’s confused, frustrated and angry. In the original onstage production he physically tears his dress off removing the wig and fake boobs. Then we move in to “Wicked Little Town – Reprise”. (This is my favourite song.) And it is so frustrating that in the feature film because Tommy Gnosis is cast as a different actor to Hedwig it doesn’t quite capture the same meaning as the onstage production. I understand why it was necessary though.

This is where things become very open to interpretation. Has Hedwig become Tommy? Have they reformed to become one? Actually put themselves back together? Is it just a symbol of Tommy finally understanding Hedwig?
Potentially, all of the above.

For me, it’s a metaphor. The reworded song lyrics show Tommy is trying tell Hedwig that he understands what Hedwig’s gone through, he realises how hard his life’s been and how much he’s had taken from him in life. At the same time it’s Hedwig coming to terms with everything he’s gone through.

“And there’s no mystical design
No cosmic lover preassigned.
There’s nothing you can find
That can not be found.
‘Cause with all the changes
You’ve been through
It seems the stranger’s always you
Alone again in some new
Wicked Little Town.”
(Wicked Little Town - Reprise)

Hedwig has finally accepted himself. He’s been searching for somewhere to belong all his life but everywhere he goes he gives up parts of himself to not recieve the acceptance he desires in return. His mother never cared for him, his husband left him after him giving up his penis, Tommy left him after taking away his music.

“Know in you soul
Like your blood knows the way
From you heart to your brain
Know that you’re whole
(Midnight Radio)

He has accepted he isn’t half of a whole but is whole himself. He doesn’t need anything else, be it the wigs, the heels, the make up or even another person.

The metaphor of him morphing in to Tommy is that Tommy is a visual representation of the other half of himself, the half he was trying to find and in the end it was him that actually needs to accept himself. Tommy is the symbol of the missing part of himself, he needed to accept.

So finally, in Midnight Radio he gives Yitzhak the wig that Yitzhak has been craving the entire play (“I’m bearing my soul here and you’re masturbating with acrylic hair!”) Yitzhak is allowed to embrace his true self just as Hedwig learns to embrace himself. Hedwig leaves the stage as Hedwig but looking like Tommy.

The play is about identity and self-acceptance. I think it’s beautiful because it’s something so many people struggle with. Be it your gender, orientation, body image or even if you’re a heterosexual, cis-person simply trying to accept yourself in your own skin. As I said, not everyone’s going to interpret it the same way as me, but hopefully this might help one person get Hedwig.

(Just as a last note: pronouns for Yitzhak are tricky as its never resolved if he/she identifies as female in a drag queen sense, or a transgender way. I went with male pronouns as they’re used in the musical.)

bruh...

still laughing about how that half-assed ending for the EQ didn’t culminate with a True Love kiss with R0bin. ouat continues to write their ambiguous stories, leaving them open to interpretation. as it is, there’s no way to know for sure the EQ stayed with him. all they did was have a beer in a filthy tavern like buddies. 😂  and don’t even get me started on the parallel dimension they sent the EQ to. out of all the realms they could’ve sent her to, they picked the very one in which she just murdered the king, the queen, and possibly their princess- OH and Henry fucking hates her. lmao

you know, even if you aren’t a fan of Night Vale you can’t deny that it’s pretty important as a piece of media

the first reason being that it’s a fairly unconventional creative work (like, who listens to radio anymore, right?) that is entirely donor-funded, and yet still managed to pull off multiple national and international tours, sells a good and diverse amount of merchandise, has produced three books (one of which is the novel), and has been featured in the New York Times I believe twice now

like that’s all super impressive for an independent creative work that is totally funded by listeners

and also, it’s super important because it goes out of its way to be diverse on multiple levels

like obviously we have Cecil, whose appearance is totally open to interpretation and who is almost certainly gay (as opposed to bi, for example; all the people that he’s implied to have had a thing with are men.)
And he’s in a loving and healthy relationship with Carlos, whose appearance is a little less open to interpretation (between his name and Cecil describing him as dark and delicate skinned.) Like, we have a wonderful canon relationship between two men that never had all the Gay Angst we so often see in stories about LGBTQ+ people.

And even besides that, we have lots of moments where the show goes out of its way to prevent whitewashing or otherwise defaulting to a certain standard.

We have LOTS of great female characters, like Old Woman Josie, Tamika Flynn, Dana, Pamela Winchell (all of whom also happen to be black or very much coded as black.) We also had Basimah, a lesbian hijabi. And Janice, who has used a wheelchair since birth and, as stated in the show, does not need fixing. We’ve also had several mentions of nonbinary or possibly agender characters (like Alicia in the desert otherworld and one Sheriff’s spokesperson). Like, I could go on and on but you get the idea.

And there’s tons of other moments that are little shout outs and challenges to perceptions. There’s one moment I remember in particular where something like, “American Teddy’s Halal Stand” was mentioned. I just remember that sticking out to me because it seems so subtle and throwaway but if you catch it it’s seems like a huge and important thing to include.

like…I love Night Vale because it goes out of its way to do things like this and more, and it’s great on its own, but it’s even greater because the show’s popularity proves that you can have this kind of diversity in a piece of media and still have it be immensely popular

A New Spamano Rec List!

Hi! So lately, I’ve been feeling the need for a new rec list for spamano fics. Probably because I’ve read most stories on most other lists, I don’t know. I write Spamano too, so if you’re interested, you can check out my fics here and here (some shameless self-promotion, hahaha), but I also have a very long list of spamano fics that I absolutely *adore*, written by some wonderful writers. 

I think she’s pretty popular as a spamano writer, and she’s a dear friend, but Spinyfruit has some amazing fics for this pairing. My favourites are The Space Between the Balconies, Tesoro Mio and Before the Snow Falls

For the rest, I’ve made a list!

All these stories are complete, and include both oneshots and multichapters. Warnings have been provided wherever required. 

1) Exasperation by ReinMaker - 
Lovino reflects on how it came to this, thanks to himself and his mother-in-law.

What I love about this fic is that it’s short, cleanly written and highly realistic. It gives you an idea of life beyond the happily ever after - it gives you an insight into what may happen next. The open-ending leaves it up to the reader to decide what needs to happen between Antonio and Lovino. 

2)  Five Steps to the Perfect Wine (or Romance) by BlackRoseGirl666 -  Spain and South Italy fall in love in steps that may or may not be comparable to those that go into making wine, if Spain were to be asked. Other nations stumble around them, slightly amazed.

I feel like this oneshot needs to be more popular because it’s hopelessly romantic and it just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Also, it’s beautifully written. 

3)  All of Our Sins by Terminally Introverted -  Lovino is Catholic, but he’s not entirely sure what he believes. Nevertheless, he and his brother Feliciano are forced to attend confirmation classes. When Lovino meets their group leader- bizarre, cheerful Antonio; one of the first people to treat Lovino like he matters- things get complicated. When they find this church is much darker than it appears, things get terrifying. Fast.

While this one has trigger warnings for self-harm and anxiety and suicidal themes, I know that it’s fairly well-known. I like it for how realistic it is and how it addresses the themes of homophobia. The fic is both frightening and heart-wrenching, but overwhelmingly hopeful. 

4) glory hallelujah by boys and girls look to the sky -  “Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. I had gay sex to music that wasn’t Gospel.” – Lovino/Antonio

Short and outrageously funny, this fic had me in splits, saying, “Holy crap!” over and over again. 

5)  strangers by 2degreesabovefreezing -  Lovino’s music was missing one thing…him. Antonio Fernandez Carriedo, the optimistic busker who changed his life in ways he never could have guessed. Love can be lost as easily as it’s found, especially when it’s found by two broken-hearted kids still trying to find their way in life. A slice-of-life tale about the healing power of music, based off the award winning musical Once.

This is another fic I think deserves more recognition than it has. Sad, romantic and powerful, I love the portrayal of the characters. It’s just a really well-written story. 

6) All’s Fair in Love and Football by stellariums -  “There, there, you blubbering goddamn pansy.” — A protective Lovino, his hysterical Spanish boyfriend, a massacre on the soccer field, and a moment of silence for Lars’ ridiculously expensive car.

Written after Spain’s disastrous FIFA defeat, this is a short but adorable (and funny) series about how Romano deals with his heartbroken boyfriend.

7) Project Bastard by LogicalDreamer -  Romano is conducting a study. Or maybe not so much a study as a critical review, or maybe just some nice memories he can talk about when that ring comes into play.

Who doesn’t love a Spamano Artist AU set in Rome?

8) Please Don’t Cry by Lady-Pyrien -  Antonio has a knack for making the other kids smile when they are upset. His mother always did say he had a ‘fectious smile. However, when he meets Lovino, a child who won’t stop crying on his first day of school, what is Antonio to do? Should he give up?

There’s nothing to say except that I love every single thing about this fic. The Spamano is adorable and the young characters are the cutest things ever. 

9) Tomato Poetry by JokertheMatrix -  Gakuen AU. Lovino and his brothers have moved into town, and a certain Spanish teen has made it his life mission to befriend this troubled Italian through the use of tomato poetry. Rated T for Lovino’s swearing and other sorts of language from others, although it’s mildly used.

This fic is probably one of the best High School AUs I’ve ever read, it’s as simple as that.

7) Tocar by superhoarding -  It’s almost 4 am, freezing cold outside and something is bothering Spain.

This oneshot is really interesting. I love the role-reversal when it’s Spain that needs taking care of, but I love Lovino’s take on it here. It’s vague, but in a pleasing way, and the whole story has this quiet, secretive, midnight-ish kind of feeling that I really enjoyed.

8) You Can Bet It’s Love by ShippingEverything -  In which no one understands how Romano and Spain aren’t dating, and America wants to make some money.

This is a delightfully funny spamano oneshot where everyone’s betting on Spamano. I really like how many countries get involved. It’s an easy read for when you’re feeling stressed and you just want some spamano perfection.

9) Surrender by ChampagneSly -  In the midst of the Spanish Civil War, Romano makes his way to Spain’s door to make amends.

This fic is really…melancholy. And heavy, of course. But it’s realistic, which is what I love in a story set in historical times. 

10) Hold Me Close While I Fall Apart by TheAlmightyMochaLatte - Romano goes over to his old boss Spain’s home, just to check on him, what ends up happening -is a surprise. No, they don’t … “do it”, you nasties. Trigger warning for self harm(also a spoiler alert)

As the description says, this fic contains dark themes such as self-harm, but is ultimately a beautiful fic about finding acceptance. Told in sixteen short chapters, the fic’s style gives each scene incredible intensity. 

11)  Two Ways About It by VIII of XIII -  In which Romano realizes that he does not know the proper way to accept a marriage proposal. Spain/Romano, some America/England and Greece/Japan

This is a very long two-shot, but it’s punchy and extremely funny. I particularly enjoyed how Romano and Spain were portrayed. 

12) How to Read for Dummies by Cutthroat Pixie -  Spain/Romano, plus Prussia and France!: The Bad Friends Trio teach Romano to read using their own patented method.

Some might say that this is actually more of a BTT story than a Spamano fic, but I think it’s a bit of both. I loved the concept, and its execution. I was giggling the whole way. 

13) Terra Rossa by Idlesana -  Romano has an artistic vision and Spain provides the color. -He shouldn’t have followed the red stains into the bathroom…

This is a very intense oneshot. I guess it has several interpretations, and I find it terribly sad, but I also think it’s vivid and glorious. Each time I read it, I fall in love with it some more. 

14) Door to Door by Canadino -  Do not open the door. It could be a zombie, an unwanted boyfriend of your brother’s, or a persistant salesman by the name Antonio Carriedo. Spain/Romano, implied Germany/Italy, AU.

Canadino is such a good writer, and I think this AU really suits spamano for some reason. 

15) Falling by Frostwhisker -  Antonio always comes up with the stupidest ideas. But sometimes, the suffering his brainless schemes can cause is worth it in the end. AU Spamano. Fluff

Just tooth-rotting Spamano fluff and left me grinning. I’ve read this multiple times because it just cheers me up so much. 

16) The Poison Dance by Scarabsi -  In which, to Romano’s dismay, Spain discovers the Delicious Tomato song and listens to it. Rated for bad language and references to organized crime.

This is probably one of the most interesting Spamano fics I’ve read. Initially, I’d expected it to be funny, but it’s not. This fic is more like a study of their relationship, and of Romano in particular, and the whole thing is just tackled so gracefully. There are some references I don’t really get, but I don’t think it makes a difference, because this fic remains powerful regardless. It actually inspired my fic Lentamente. For the concept and its execution, I feel like The Poison Dance is an extremely under-appreciated fic, which is a real shame because it’s probably one of the better Spamano oneshots out there. 

 17)  Chocolate Kisses and White Board Markers by LionAmongTheSheep -  Antonio works at a sweets shop at Disney, making taffy and other random assortments with his coworker Francis. His shop and the chocolate shop next door are only separated by a large glass wall, and one day he sees a beautiful man who he communicates with using said wall.

Tooth-rotting fluff, as you can imagine.

18) How to care for your Spaniard by  IggyThePunyTweeling97 -  Romano has written a journal which contains all his observations revolving around keeping his Spaniard alive.

I see this as a snapshot, or perhaps a short insight into how their relationship works. It left me smiling all throughout. I basically live to see caring!Lovino (I cannot tell you how SICK the conventional “Damaged Lovi needs love and Spain saves the day” crap makes me), so seeing their relationship from Romano’s point of view is a great way to see him reciprocate in the relationship. 

19)  Desaparecido by Happymood -  When Spain goes missing one day, Romano set his mind on finding him, discovering a lot of things along the way. Spamano. Plus other minus pairings.

This was probably one of the first Spamano fics I’d ever read, and it left me feeling quite sad. It has a happy ending, sort of, but still. But the fic is beautiful, of course, and it’s not something you can just leave half way. 

20)  Dolce Propuestas by OwlinAMinor -  If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And then again. And again. Spamano.

This super cute oneshot is nothing but pure fluff, a story about how they propose to each other. 

-

I hope you enjoyed these fics! I may put up another rec list, probably of another pairing or character. I think the beauty about Hetalia is that there is a lot that fans can explore, from AUs to pairings to friendships and family bonds, and there are thousands of wonderful writers out there who are eager to delve into these aspects. 

Anyway, see you next time! 

Let’s Movie Nerd-Out About Identity and Memory in ‘Swiss Army Man’

For a story conceived of as a running gag about the worst possible premise for a film, Swiss Army Man sure raises a lot of deep questions. (Heh, ‘raises.’) At first glance, this movie looks like an overly-sincere indie dramedy in which New Age open-mindedness dismantles antiquated social mores and Daniel Radcliffe farts as far away from the Harry Potter franchise as possible – a combination that works or flounders depending on whether you’re on board with the joke – but there’s a subtler side. Issues of identity and memory (or more broadly, knowledge) crop up everywhere in this love story, and I expect they will be a topic of speculation for many years to come. With a movie this crazy in particular, I want to acknowledge that we can all play the subtext game and wind up with wildly different interpretations, so this is not me painting anyone with an extra-saucy coat of shade. A lot depends on how you value the information a film throws at you, and generically, magical realism likes to force its audience to choose what to believe. So, bearing that in mind, let’s make like Hank and Manny and dive right in. Major spoilers below.

I read a famous quote on Tumblr awhile back about ‘almost’ being the saddest word there will ever be.

How we almost made it and almost became forever. How we almost loved each other until the last star died out. How we almost became the best parts of my poetry and we almost stayed together after all of this time.

Fuck that.

The saddest word?

Always.

I’ll always love the way you were gentle even when I forgot how to be delicate. How you always showed me the coolest thing and brought out the best personality from deep within my soul. I’ll always remember how you called past 11 pm because the thunder storms kept you up and you can’t handle sleeping alone with loud noises near your head. I always knew you would be the one to break me. I always screamed before I whispered into your ears. Forever and always, a load of shit. I’ll never be happy enough or sad enough to deal with how you always knew the right words to say I was just like my father. We’ll always be something that was close to being complete. I always loved how you indirectly made me pick up the pen. The smell of your natural, earthy and rosy breath will always be near spring. How I always think about you at night. How sad I’ll always be when I think about you. When we always laughed at other people for how they were instead of looking within our own shallow relationship and how broken we will always be. How we’ll always be rejected by your mother. How I’ll always miss your 17 year old you vs the you now. How you always made me feel like shit and amazing at the same time. Always on my mind during the day even if I’m not on yours. Always a story without an ending and not the cliffhanger left open for interpretation. How you always stopped writing back. How I always waited and waited, and then you picked up that trait. How I’ll always compare you to the sun and the sea. I’ll always be someone who wasn’t good enough. I’ll always be the guy you call when he isn’t around. I’ll always be just another one of your hopeless smiles. How I’ll always be the ex who treated you the worst. I’ll always be your always when it comes to never again.

But you know what?

I’ll always love you even if we weren’t meant to be, even if you say it a million times.

“I’m the one, but not the one right now.”

I’ll always be that sentence to you.

Almost isn’t the saddest word,
always is because without always
there won’t be those almost moments.

I’ll always love you even if we almost destroyed ourselves by doing so.

We’ll always remember
how much we loved.
The tears we shared,
the love we made
and the tenderness
strapped to gentleness
lost before we uttered
that cruel, cruel word.

Always.

I will always miss you.
I will always want to be with you.
I will always wait for you.
I will always love you.

Because it’s on our mind every second of every day, because some of us dwell in the past even if the future calls us, because some of us still stargaze with them in our heads even after they let go, because some of us still miss that kiss or that smile, because some of our best memories will always be home.

That’s why always is the saddest word.

Because it’ll always be just that.

Something you’ll always think about,
but wouldn’t act upon it.
Something you’ll always cherish,
but won’t miss nearly as often.
Something you’ll always hold your breath for even if it slowly kills you.

Why couldn’t you be better than someone I’ll always love?

Maybe that’s when almost comes into play. You almost became that person.

—  Almost vs always // a clash between writers and lovers; i’ll always love you and i almost loved you forever.

anonymous asked:

So, for the "Clockwork" AU, what does that imply? It sounds cool, but what is the general idea about? Love the event days and your blog! (=♡=)

It is open for interpretation, really =3

I’m gonna give two examples, but you don’t have to take either of them if you don’t want to, ok?

Ex.: I’ve seen clock stuff to be associated with Steampunk,
Ex.: I also already have read a story about robots using the ideas of clockwork

Etcetera =D

feel free to interpret as you like (preferably with Sci-fi, of course haha)

Of course Destiel exists in fanfiction, fanart, in fan interpretations. It exists in a billion different ways, and it will continue to exist. But the girl wasn’t asking whether fans are free to interpret the relationship however they want (which would be a pointless question anyway, because of course fans are free to do so, no matter what anyone says). Instead, she asked why the show doesn’t officially adopt the interpretation of one specific group of fans.

Jensen has said before that SPN “is an art form, and people are supposed to derive different things out of art, to be inspired differently. The show might mean something to one person but mean something completely different to another person. People look at it from different perspectives, which I think is phenomenal, I love that.” (JIBcon 2015)

Which makes it clear that he’s not invalidating any fan interpretations, including Destiel. But he’s also made it clear that he does not think “there’s anything secret going on between Dean and Cas” and that he certainly doesn’t play it that way (JIBcon 2014).

Like Dean tells Marie in Fan Fiction, “I have my version, and you have yours.” We all know what Jensen’s version is. Jensen – together with the writers – is one of the main storytellers of the actual text of the show. And he’s always been open about the fact that he’s telling the story as Dean seeing Cas like a friend, brother and comrade in arms. So asking him “Why don’t you start telling the story differently, why aren’t you telling it my way?” could only lead to the answer Jensen gave.

I know that the author is dead and authorial intent is no longer considered to be the main (if any) authority for a text. But that doesn’t mean the audience gets to harass the author and demand that he writes the text the way they want it to be written. Or explicitly ask him for his interpretation and then condemn him for it when it’s not what they wanted to hear. (And yes, I realize Jensen is not the only author of Dean Winchester, but at the very least he’s the only co-author who’s been there since the beginning.)

Youtuber!Jimin

Okay before I start this I just want to say something I came onto tumblr just a few minutes ago and I’m about to go and start to write right and then bts is just like lol we dropped a mv and I honestly feel so ??? like um okay I didn’t allow this but whatever side note my bby my love was in a tie and it was all loosened up and they all looked so good and I’m so ready for the album and now Vixx released their mv I’m done goodbye I refuse but back to the AU, it is time for our precious angel, half of the Busan line, the one, the only, Park Jimin aka chim aka he just looked so so good in the mv like he’s always beautiful but it was top quality really

  • I think Jimin would take his channels in a few different directions
  • He wouldn’t really stick to just one thing
  • Like Namjoon kinda just does whatever he wants, films whatever type of video he’s in the mood for, etc.
  • Jimin’s quite similar in that aspect
  • He doesn’t branch off quite as much but if he feels like making a video that’s not exactly on the same path as his others he’s okay with doing that
  • He would post a lot of covers
  • Even in his normal videos, he’s singing between questions or topics or during the outro bc this kid loves music
  • Yoonmin trash speaking but he would get Yoongi to play the piano for him when he did covers
  • It would take the promise of a free lunch to get Yoongi over but it always worked
  • The viewers love them together though??
  • Like every now and then, he’d film a vlog right, on the more exciting days where he did something special
  • Like go to an amusement park or travel something out of the norm basically
  • They just love the contrast in personalities
  • The thing that gets them though is that even though they bicker a lot and yoons all sarcasm while jimin just giggles at the jokes, at the end of the day, they know they love each other
  • Like there will be those lil moments where yoon actually offers a bite of whatever he’s eating to jimin after overhearing him say something to the camera about forgetting his wallet in the car  
  • He’d always always always have Tae, Yoongi or Jungkook with him
  • He and kook live together bc Busan boys
  • The viewers see a lot of kook, definitely more than the other two, purely bc they share an apartment
  • They’ve actually made a few videos together
  • Kook often helps chim edit
  • Jimin normally films all day and then edits at night and bc he does other things after or before filming, he’s like exhausted at that point
  • So even though he gets most of the editing done, he still ends up falling asleep with his head on the desk
  • Jungkook takes over after that bc he knows chim doesn’t like to miss his upload date
  • So he just finishes up the editing for him and then sets everything up for Jimin so he doesn’t have to stress about it the next morning
  • On top of covers and the occasional vlog, Jimin also does dance videos
  • They’re not too common but they’re not as rare as the vlogs
  • Like its not a weekly thing but also happens at least once a month, maybe two
  • It’s like a hey I really really really liked this song and I wanted to show you guys the way I personally connected with it type of thing
  • He l o v e s filming with Tae
  • He loves doing pretty much anything with Tae bc best friend but filming is fun !!!
  • Tae just has this natural humor to him and Jimin’s v v comfortable around him so they can both just have fun and make a video and be silly
  • Jimin does a lot of tags with him bc that’s tae’s forte
  • They’re both lowkey competitive without overdoing it
  • You were actually another youtuber
  • You’d seen one of Jimin’s dances and immediately fallen in love with him it
  • You mentioned him in a video or a tweet/post, praising his skills and of course his subscribers were like dude you gotta see this
  • Plot twist, he’s actually watched your channel for quite some time after kookie had shown him one of your videos
  • So when he sees you, his secret youtube crush, talking about how you loved his dance, he flips
  • He tries to play it cool and lowkey flirt in his reply bc he can’t resist the opportunity
  • You two start flirting over social media
  • It’s actually really cute bc all of your subscribers and his get to like slowly watch this love story begin, day after day before it kinda goes quiet for a bit ??
  • Like they even ask both of you like hey what happened you two were being all cute
  • There’s a solid month of silence when it comes to each other before surprise you’re in his video
  • You two confirm you’re friends (even though at that point you’re already calling him your boyfriend but you two wanted to take it at your own pace and not have to worry about the internet)
  • But the way he says it definitely leaves it open to interpretation
  • “We met about a month ?? ago and we’re very happy around each other and we get along great and this lil cutie is definitely one of my best friends”
  • He doesn’t confirm anything, he doesn’t really give out much information and that’s pretty much it he leaves it at that
  • You two appear in each other’s videos constantly  
  • He’s a v v affectionate man so sometimes you have to cut some things out
  • Like you were filming a q&a and you said something he found cute so he just leans over and kisses your cheek 
  • You two decide to announce you’re together on your anniversary bc cute
  • At that point, you can both easily say you’re madly in love and are ready to go public with it

Sketch/doodle dump of svtfoe stuff. 

Mostly for the Saint Olga au.(au where Miss Heinous ‘annihilated’ the rebel-rousers that brought chaos to her school by turning one into a top-notch guard, and the other into a star pupil.) Soldier/”Sol” for short, and “Lady” respectively. 

A lot of the sketches/incomplete pieces were inspired by requests, and a slight time-skip story a lovely anon wrote. The last doodle was a combination of me wanting to practice fancy dresses, and imagining a st.O centric bad end for Janna and Jackie. The au can go in a lot of sad/bad directions, and I like to keep interpretations/creation open, and not pigeonhole/limit things.(at least not too much) 

After a small struggle regarding the end to this, I’ve left it somewhat open to interpretation. Hopefully it still fits his character and suits the story. This was requested by @im-a-motherfuckin-mermaid (which is a bloody brilliant url) and @animefreak808

“The Very Newlyweds” (Part 3)

Part 2

The palace wasn’t often so silent. There was always noise to be found – the crackling of a torch, the gentle hum of conversation in a nearby room, or thunderous footsteps. However, as you slipped through the hallways, shadows suffocated the hallways and drowned them in silence. A familiar cloak and hood concealed your face from guards whom you ultimately did not pass and with a sigh of relief, you reached the entrance.

The grand doors beckoned you towards them and it was with gentle steps that you obliged. However, a smooth voice echoed against the walls, freezing your spine. He was everywhere and nowhere. He was here but you couldn’t see him. Hidden.

“The last time you were caught sneaking about the palace, you had the intention of leaving.” Loki said, stepping out from the shadows. “Somehow I fear that tonight your intentions are frighteningly similar.”

“I thought you were asleep.” You whispered, turning around to face him. He was still in his nightclothes.
“Yes, I think that you were banking on that.” He snapped. You bowed your head shamefully and hoped that the floor would open up and swallow you.

“My dearest,” Loki said softly, “where could you possibly be going at this time of night?”
“I think you know.”
“Perhaps. But I do not want to say it aloud lest it be true.”
“I can’t stay, Loki. I can’t… I can’t accept your proposal.”

Tell me you love me,“ she whispered. “Lie.”

Tangled in hotel bedsheets while the dawn cast a soft light on their lonely bodies, she looked for all appearances like a woman well-loved with her swollen lips and tangled mess of hair. There was no mention of a promise while the scent of lust hung heavy in the air and as urgent mouths pressed towards each other, it was clear he wanted her. But it was not the kind of want that lasts, and she was not the kind of girl who mistook wanting for love. Not anymore.

“I love you,” he said.

A tear trickled down her cheek as a quiet breath came out of her, the kind of sigh one would make when you put ice on a bad burn.

She looked at him, at this person who was just another body, another pair of limbs, with eyes she will never get to know deeply and a soul she wouldn’t even touch. ‘This is how broken feels like,‘she thought.

You can touch something beautiful only to feel it slip away and pretending is the closest you can get to feeling.
